Mel Gibson THREATENED his own 78-year-old step-mom … SPIT IN HER FACE … and sabotaged her marriage … this according to legal docs filed by the woman and obtained by our sources.
Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson — who married Mel”s father Hutton Gibson in 2001 — has filed for a restraining order against Mel … claiming he exploded on her several times and now she fears for her safety.
In the docs, Joye claims Mel and his sister Maura hate her guts … because she doesn”t approve of the controversial medical treatments they”ve been pressuring Hutton to undergo to treat his various ailments.
In the docs, filed by attorney Brian J. Kramer, Joye describes several outbursts in detail:
October 2011 — Mel screams at Joye because Joye does not approve of “experimental Ozone treatments” Hutton was undergoing for an undisclosed illness.
“Mel began yelling and saying, “f*ck this and f*ck that” while leveling other extremely offensive language at me.”
Joye claims Mel warned her “not to f*ck with [Hutton”s] treatments in any way.”
January 2012 — While visiting Hutton in the hospital, Joye claims she said something that set Mel off … and “Mel got up, looking wild and began yelling at me in a very loud and terrifying voice.”
“Mel was so upset and screaming so fiercely that I could see his face turn red.”
